We are currently in a pilot of Quality Matters, a rubric for evaluating the design of online courses.
2 faculty members from each college have the opportunity to get trained as reviewers. There was a training in April (which I attended). There will be another training in September (no date yet). Tori Saneda will be our second evaluator and Todd Lundberg is lined up as a backup if Tori can't make it.
Each college will be able to submit 1 course for QM review. I'll be presenting this question to the Distance Learning Committee to see how we might select that course.
There is a plan to have a master reviewer training in November. The pilot is planned to wrap up in December, though I'm not sure it can all be accomplished by then. At the end of the pilot, the eLearning team will determine whether it makes sense for the state to adopt Quality Matters as is system wide or whether we should grow our own using QM as a model or toss QM and do something else.
